2018 Division-Villages L’Isle Verte Chenin Blanc

Division Winemaking Co- Oregon, Willamette Valley

Available in: 75cl

Flinty, smoky, with notes of fresh green grass and wild flowers, this wine is reminiscent of dry Vouvray or Anjou Blanc with all the impressive acidity of Loire Valley Chenin. More about mineral than fruit notes, the mid and back palate are all earth and stones overlaid by delicate honeysuckle notes. The finish is long with abundant citrus pith.
